What will I learn?

At the graduate level we offer a coursework-based MA program which does not involve fieldwork and is designed to be completed in 12 months; a thesis-based MA program which requires ethnographic fieldwork; and a PhD program which requires ethnographic fieldwork. We also offer a one-year graduate diploma which does not require research.

Many of our former graduate students have gone on to become professional anthropologists. Others have used anthropology to build careers in fields such as journalism, filmmaking, and public policy. In recent decades, the Department has placed a strong emphasis on the use of film and video in our research projects and has established a Visual Anthropology Unit, comprised of several faculty members and graduate students. A number of graduate students have been able to produce ethnographic films to accompany their thesis research. All graduate students have access to the Digital Research Centre for Qualitative Fieldwork, which houses a range of recording and processing equipment, including audio and video recorders and editing equipment, as well as a highly skilled full-time staff member to provide technical support and training.
